If terms like ‘Birkin’, and ‘Kelly’ are quick to perk your ears up, you may consider yourself a designer handbag enthusiast. It’s also easy to want to add more to your collection given the ocean of exceptional handbags out there, and auctions are the ideal place to find your next precious accessory.

A total of 20 coveted handbags will be showcased by Christie’s Dubai from the upcoming London auction of Handbags and Accessories on November 19. Expect to see rare and unique pieces of both vintage and contemporary designs from globally loved brands like Chanel, Gucci, Hermès and Louis Vuitton, amongst others. Besides the Birkins and Kellys, the auction’s highlights also include a sequined Chanel flap bag, a Dior monogram saddle bag, and a limited edition Louis Vuitton by Karl Lagerfeld set of boxing gloves, mat, and case. 

The conditions of these handbags range from grades 1-6, with 1 denoting the handbag is in pristine condition, and 6 denoting that it is in fair condition. Alongside regular online and live auctions in Hong Kong, London, New York and Paris, selected collector pieces are also available for immediate purchase through Christie’s Private Sales all year round. What’s more, Handbags & Accessories Associate Specialist Lucile Andreani will be at your disposal for free and confidential valuations of individual pieces or collections, or to discuss private selling opportunities.

To view the handbags, visit Christie’s Dubai – DIFC/Gate Village, Building 5, Podium Level from October 13-17, 10am-6pm.
